    I should probably check that out. 2.2 is still better than nothing though.

    You were raised in the good times...the last 5yrs have been fabulous. Remember the hard times and the 1.2 days.

    Not unless you are in a "Targeted" pay range.

    There will be another 2.2% on April 1st for those that are.

    Are you talking about serving during the Clinton years?

    meh, at least we'll probably never actually get a pay cut, even if it's just inflation-level pay raises

    and only 7 more months till i make captain :noes: so there's my big raise

    Yup...or even worse during the Carter Administration...not that Carter was to blame but to be in the Military in the late 70's was a very bad time. Reagan was a god send to the Military even if it was in pursuit of the cessation of WWIII (Cold War). During the Clinton administration focused was placed on the force anchored in Cold War ideology and unable to change to face a new enemy. Shinsheki as one of the branch chiefs really was the first General since the Reagan era to get funding where funding needed to go for the betterment of all services. It was Shinsheki with help from CSM Jack Tilley that got the Bush administration to really focus on much needed pay raises for the enlisted side of the house...without their efforts none of the branches would be at where they are now. The idea of targeted pay raises really got congress moving and getting the critical enlisted grades up to speed.
